Middle Eastern Restaurants in Shanghai

Although Shanghai has dozens of small mom and pop Middle Eastern restaurants, there are only so many that stay open for any length of time or that have English-language or picture menus. Of the bigger and more well known Middle Eastern Restaurants, there is an infusion of Mediterranean and Indian cuisine, making it more of a grand Persian genre than simple Middle Eastern fare.

Anadolu Turkish Restaurant and Istanbul Turkish Restaurant are two excellent Middle Eastern options for delicious kebabs, wraps and excellent grilled sides. The nan bread at both restaurants is delicious and worth the trip alone. Meanwhile, the lamb dishes are delectable and excite the senses.

Hazara and Indian Kitchen are well known, respected Indian cuisine restaurants that have decidedly Middle Eastern influences, especially in the multitude of meat dishes. Hazara is an upper scale eatery with immaculate decor and great service while Indian Kitchen has trusted traditional dishes from the north and south of India as well as a few Pakistani dishes done simply but expertly.

Xinjiang, China's north-western most province and a Muslim influenced area, has food around Shanghai including the Shanghai Xinjiang Fengwei and Yershari Xinjiang Restaurant. Both serve delicious lagman, nan and lamb as well as simple chicken dishes. Both are affordable and yet filling, and the decor is simple and clean.

Tong Guang Niu and Hongchangxing are both Middle Eastern restaurants with simple menus that cover a range of Middle Eastern dishes and range from north African to Mediterranean and Indian influences in traditional Middle Eastern dishes.

Finally, the Olive and Haya's offer Mediterranean dishes with Middle Eastern influences. The kebabs, fellaffel and hummus at these establishment are legendary and worth a trip in and of themselves, but the lamb dishes are Middle Eastern, as is the nan and drink selections.
